A New Calendar is in Beta

We just launched a brand new calendar with a refreshed design, all new activity tracking, and updated rescheduling features. For the next couple of months you’ll have the option of continuing to use the current calendar or trying out the new one.

To join the Beta all you have to do is go to Account Profile, then select Yes under Participate in the Calendar Beta.

In November, we’ll turn on the new calendar for everyone so now is your opportunity to try it out and give us feedback about what you like and what we can continue to improve before we retire the old calendar.
